If we do see two sizes I think it will be "iPhone 6" and "iPhone 6+" in line with the "iPhone math" rumors.
The new radial menu seems to be a very specific design decision and has me wondering if this hints at a potential watch display form factor.
I think we are going to start hearing a lot more about third party extensibility. There are lots of advantages to offering a single app with additional pro functionality being offered (at a price) in a compartmentalised, but structured, way.
 Eventually devices may have entirely cognitive interfaces. There is little need for a display when pure concepts can be projected into your consciousness.
Serious question: Are there any usable workarounds for Endnote referencing support, mailmerge and pivot tables? These are literally the only 3 things keeping me from ditching Microsoft Office forever.
I genuinely don't understand why people are fanatical about swype-type keyboards. It seems to me that dragging a finger across glass is slower than two-thumb pecking. It also gives the predictive text software less information to work with (eg. one tap per letter), which makes it more likely to suggest incorrect words. What am I not getting? The only thing that really bugs me about the iPhone keyboard is how easily the dictation button can unintentionally triggered.
 It's not a question of innovation rather one of useability. I've always felt there was far too much bezel in the iPhone lineup, particularly above the display. The reason it's so big is to a sense of visual balance/symmetry between the chin and forehead. Also it probably allowed for a larger battery since that's where the loss would have most been felt if they had minimised the forehead. The actual sensor used by touch ID is much smaller than the home button though so...
 I certainly hope so. And I hope this comes with the iPhone 6. The introduction of touch ID in iPhone 5S was an extremely conservative proof of concept. iOS's sandboxing and touch ID intersect in such a way to enable powerful security without additional complexity. PayPass is convenient but it lacks a verification step. Touch ID can introduce a verification step that is more simple than remembering a pincode and is not vulnerable to being glimpsed at the checkout. This is...
I'm pretty sure the "3D" tech in Amazon's smartphone will basically be a commercial implementation of this tech demo from 2007 except tracking your eyes directly instead of requiring an a pair of infrared light sources stuck to your head.     It's not true 3D but I find the illusion even better and it' much easier on the eyes. Seems resource intensive for a mobile device but it still strikes me as odd that no-one has really pursued this until now. Of course the...
The thing I am most looking forward to in iOS 8 is installing any keyboard that makes the dictation key less prone to activating unintentionally.
